When I first told people I had decided to leave the ‘land of opportunity’ and start a new life back in blighty, everyone naturally asked “Why?”
“I miss proper bacon,” was my immediate response, which came as little surprise to those who know me (and for those who don’t, I’m a butcher’s daughter).
While I was unashamedly serious about my cravings for home-cured rashers, it was the pull of family that actually spurred my return.
You see Australia is an incredible place, but jeez it’s far away. So after four years of putting numerous proverbial shrimps on the barbie, I came home.
Well, I came to London – which is still 250 miles from home, but I feel like that’s splitting hairs now – and to Pressgang.
I’m a month into my new position writing/editing and I’m feeling very lucky to have found such a fantastic company to work for – in all respects. The team’s passion for producing innovative and engaging publications is infectious and everyone pulls together to go that extra mile.
I’ve already had the chance to write about a range of subjects from aeroplane engines to beatboxing – and have even interviewed everyone’s favourite six-pack, Peter Andre!
So I may have left one land of opportunity, but I’ve happily found myself in another here at Pressgang. Bacon sandwich anyone?
